I just had a nasty thought. What if, and this is assuming that you were
definitely hacked, what if the hacker screwed with your Windows partitions
as well? Unless I am overlooking something, it would be feasible for him to
mount your Windows partitions as root (if he got root, that is) and do
whatever to them.

Just a (maybe overly paranoid) thought. If it were me, I might reinstall my
Windows partitions too. Periodic reinstalls are good for Windows anyway! ;)
